School before Labor Day not such a big deal

By Dean Shalhoup - Senior Staff Writer | Sep 5, 2020
The author, in brand new slacks, shirt and shoes, is bid adieu by Mom and little sister as he heads out the door for his first day of school on Sept. 7, 1960. The photo, taken by Mike Shalhoup, was used on the cover of a Telegraph back-to-school edition in 1997.
A special "Back-to-School Section" appeared in the Nashua Telegraph on Aug. 24, 1960, with a headline that announced schools would open on Sept. 7, which also happened to be the author's first day of first grade.
